Note: This pattern focuses on older technology (e.g. Hyperledger Fabric APIs prior to Fabric 1.4). Therefore, there is no support for this pattern and it will be archived on May 1, 2019. You are welcome to use up to that date, but we recommend that you begin working with the updated release found at https://developer.ibm.com/patterns/coffee-supply-chain-network-hyperledger-fabric-blockchain-2/.
The journey from mountaintop to countertop is long. Gaps in accountability and transparency open the door to delays and fraud. Enter IBM Blockchain. In this developer code pattern, we will create a blockchain app that increases visibility and efficiency in the supply chain of a coffee retailer, giving you a taste of a traceable, trackable coffee trade. See how blockchain can help farmers, roasters, and everyone in between bring you a fresher, fairer cup.
Have you been interested in learning about creating applications that mimic a food trust supply chain with Hyperledger Composer? This developer code pattern can help you do just that.
Learn how to create a blockchain app that increases visibility and efficiency in the supply chain of a coffee retailer. The private keys and credentials of the blockchain application will be stored on a Cloudant® database. We will use different transactions to show different possible actions for the different participants in the supply chain. This sample application will record all transactions on the IBM Blockchain Starter Kit and enable a coffee retailer to assure the customer that the coffee is organic and fair-trade.
